Patriot Day – National Day of Service and Remembrance

Sep 11, 2016

_mg_1776

The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations.

The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.

Labor Day -Maguire vs McGuire

Sep 5, 2016

More than 100 years after thedolhistory_mvm_300px_ first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.

Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

But Peter McGuire’s place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.

Construction’s Increased Reliance on Prefabrication is Just the Beginning

Jul 1, 2015

Prefabrication is the answer to one of the construction industry’s most pressing challenges: a lack of skilled workers. Builders shed millions of jobs after the bottom fell out of the housing market, and enlisting craftsmen now is proving difficult.
According to a June 6th Wall Street Journal article, “a shortage of skilled workers is stirring a variety of responses in the construction industry, from higher wages to an increasing reliance on prefabrication work.”
Prefab does indeed save on labor costs, enabling work dependent on skilled workers (and weather) to be done inside a factory by fewer people. But that’s just one of prefab’s benefits.
